Esterbrook’s new Estie harkens back to the nostalgic 1950’s in Camden, NJ. Ice cream parlors were a gathering place on warm summer nights and soda fountains were long counters with swivel seats in pharmacies and five and dimes. Jukeboxes were playing Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, Sinatra, Elvis and the Beatles. A trip for ice cream was a multi-generational affair and egg creams, malted and milkshakes were all on the menu. Perhaps the most delicious of all the summer treats, was the classic ice cream sundae. Vanilla ice cream, homemade hot fudge, a sprinkle of peanuts, a swirl of whipped cream, and most important of all, a cherry on top.
The fountain pen is offered in extra fine, fine, medium and broad. The fountain pen body is a typical size and weight. The brilliant cherry red resin is striking. Hand-finished to a gleaming shine, you’ll admire your purchase with every stroke. The pen does post the cap on the body for those who like a top heavy experience. The trim is a gold tone. The unique Esterbrook closure is just a push and single twist. Loads with a cartridge or the included converter.
The Estie rollerball allows for the widest possible selection of tips and colors. Our Monteverde refill comes in fine, medium and broad and in up to nine colors. A Schmidt Technologies rollerball is available in fine with a choice of black, blue or red.
In honor of this delectable delight we're celebrating this fall with the Estie Maraschino, a toast to a symbol of Americana: the ice cream parlor, with a juicy red addition to the Esterbrook line-up. Available in gold trim. And just like the summer, this Estie will disappear as quickly as the cherry atop a sundae.
